- Was finishing Yoshi a bad mistake for Vegeta? Or will he find a way to counter the heroes and finish the rest to rule the Mushroom Kingdom? Find out in the action-packed adventure!
Most people are asking where the story is and stuff like that, to tell the truth, this was just made outta boredom. I showed my friend Part 1 and he said it was quite good so I decided to make it a "mini" series and post it to show everyone else. I originally DID NOT INTEND to even put a story what-so-ever, but I figured I might as well put something in. Don't worry, I have good ideas for part 3 to help "polish" the story. Hope this kind of explains why there's very little of a story.

Rated 3 / 5 stars


-Good use of V-cam
-Decent length
-Credits with animation adds a nice touch

-Stale Story line
-Unoriginal design
-Text boxes lacks appeal
-JPEGness in some backgrounds makes animation an eye-sore

Most of these points should be self explanatory. However, I wish to go into a bit more detail concerning your storyline and text boxes. Almost every time a character said a line, I get the impression that author was thinking something like "What SHOULD the character say?" instead of trying to put yourself in the character's shoes and say "What WOULD the character say?"

In a nutshell, it felt like the characters were saying whatever the heck they wanted to say.

I ain't saying I'm better when it comes to story writing but should be easy to top off by anyone as mine doesn't follow a script.

And speaking of story lines, the text itself was a little uncomfortable to read especially in the cave where it was black text on a dark blue dialog box, which was on top of a dark background. Give more contrast by either brightening the color of the dialog box or text. Please? ;)

As for some of the backgrounds looking JPEGish, it would appear as if you would need to go into Publish Settings and bump the JPEG quality up higher. Unless someone corrects me, I would recommend just crank it to maximum. It shouldn't or hardly effect the size of your swf file at all.

I think your skills in sprite animation seems to shine the most is in your v-cam movement and interaction with the 16-bit environment. This is probably what boosted your score the most. In fact, I'm not even sure what advice to give you. Only to say be cautious on not over-doing all the shaking and stuff.

And yes, I'm sure we probably all heard criticism like this before countless times, but what defiantly knocked at least a point or two from me was the material used in used in this animation. This had a bit too much hint of Super Mario Bros. Z with the same DBZ sounds, visual effects, and style of dialog boxes. I'm not saying you shouldn't be using any of the same effects, but how it was executed felt like their was hardly to no original style to the sprite animation. And besides, it's overused. People can still use Mario and Sonic sprite and can look nothing like SMBZ at all. Again, I'm not saying I'm better when it comes to issues such unoriginality, but I hope there will be more effort on aiming to create your own style.

Other than that, I give you a welcoming thumb-up and would like to see how Part 3 turns out. Hopefully by then I'll give at least a seven, eight, or if you really impress me, ten stars.

God bless and good luck. ;)

thanks for the tips! And I'm new to flash so I had no-clue about JPEG's and encreasing the quality, so I'll look into that a lot more.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Well, you've got the action down pat.

Using Vageta as the villian is a bit cliche, but at least it's not Mecha-Sonic like all the other SMBZ clones use.

The real issue I have is with the story., there is none. Nothing has been explained. Even with the first episode, we don't know how Goku and Vegeta ended up in Mario world or why Vegeta wants to rule. In ep2 we have no idea where Sonic, Knuckles, and Shadow came from.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


I agree with supersonicfight. The whole plot would make no sense if you haven't watched the first part of this video, and even then it makes little sense


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Way Betta Den Part 1.

Weird Storyline But Everything else pretty damn decent.

One thing i wanted is to ask What games did those effects actually come from.
I Would really appreciate it if u helped me on that cuz its killing me tryna find them.
